FEMA: the F is for Feeble

Wonkette has posted a transcript of the mayor of New Orleans getting very feisty indeed on the subject of how totally fucking lame the government has been at taking care of things post-Katrina.

Of course, they did so well beforehand. I mean, why didn't someone tell Greyhound that it was irresponsible of them to shut down operations in New Orleans two days before the hurricane hit? There should have been fucking government-sponsored buses there to evacuate people who didn't have the resources to leave town themselves. And then there's the fuckwit in charge of FEMA.

I want to go on, but I'm really too angry to marshal my thoughts into any semblance of coherence.

I'm anxious to hear Rose's thoughts on all this horribleness. As bad as I feel, I've never been to Louisiana and can't imagine what she must be going through.

I don't see how people without cars could have left the city and gotten to shelter before the hurricane hit. If they started out on foot, how could they have gotten to a motel that wasn't full? For a mandatory evacuation, they should have had buses.
